The VGMA fracas between the duo has brought shame and ridicule on Ghana as a number of notable individuals and foreign dignitaries were present at the event. at witnessed the shameful incident.

It all started when Stonebwoy was called to receive an award, “Reggae/Dancehall Artiste of the year” an award he has won five consecutive times.

In self-defence Stonebwoy was offered a gun which he pointed towards Shatta Wale. This, however, escalated the issue as the Shatta Militants who accompanied Shatta Wale to the stage became more vicious. The two groups began trading punches.

This led to a pandemonium in the auditorium as patrons were afraid of being caught in the middle of the clash or worse, hit by a stray bullet.

Reacting to this Countryman Songo said;

”There was a time when Ghana music was dead, Nigerian music was in all over the airwaves; our journalists are to blame for that, however, someone rose to uplift Ghana Music (Shatta Wale), but, no one is acknowledging him all they try to do is bring him down.”

He added;

” Shatta was only trying to congratulate Stonebwoy on his win.. So it doesn’t matter if he comes with his Militants… Stonebwoy is at fault, why should he bring a gun to a public gathering? Let’s stop being hypocrites and call a spade a spade. We all know the guilty party here”

The issue is still being investigated by the Ghana police, the duo would be charged accordingly as soon as the police conclude their investigation.
